Military agrees to accept new pay scales from Oct 

 Fourteen lakh military personnel will get their new salaries under the 7th Central Pay Commission (CPC) from October 1, with the three Service chiefs agreeing to wait for the government to separately resolve the “core pay anomalies“ at a later date.Air Chief Marshal Arup Raha, in his capacity as chairman of the chiefs of staff committee, on Friday directed the Army , Navy and IAF headquarters to issue the requisite orders and instructions for implementation of the 7th CPC immediately , defence ministry sources said. This comes after defence minister Manohar Parrikar's assurance to the Service chiefs -ACM Raha, General Dalbir Singh Suhag and Admiral Sunil Lanba -that he would strive to resolve their “core pay anomalies“ at the earliest by taking them up with PM Narendra Modi. “Parrikar has already discussed the matter with the PM,“ said a source. The flurry of activity comes after the Service headquarters on September 9 issued signals to their personnel around the country that they had asked the government to keep in “abeyance“ the implementation of the 7th CPC for them till the persisting core anomalies were resolved, as first reported by TOI last week. Upset with the signals, Parrikar had summoned the Service chiefs to ask them to dispel the notion that a con frontation was brewing between the government and the armed forces. Consequently , ACM Raha had issued a statement that said, “The defence minister is seized of all the issues and has assured to resolve them at the earliest. The Services are satisfied with the response.“ The armed forces for long have maintained that successive pay commissions have degraded their status, parity and equivalence as compared to their civilian counterparts, and the 7th CPC was no exception. The 33 lakh central government civilian employe es have already begun to get their enhanced salaries under the 7th CPC -along with arrears from January 1 -from this month onwards after their new pay-scales were earlier notified by the government. But the three Services till now had kept the September 6 notification issued by the Centre for them on hold because it did not address any of their main issues. “Anomalies of the 6th CPC, incidentally , have not been resolved till now despite promises. Let's see if they are resolved now,“ said an IAF officer.
